The prescription of antiarrhythmic therapy in the elderly depends on the characteristics of clinical symptoms and on the potential morbidity and mortality. Some cardiac arrhythmias may cause bothersome symptoms but do not affect the long-term prognosis. However, other dysrhythmias with mild or no symptoms may be associated with a poor prognosis.
